9:42pm
play to the independence in this country. independence in this country. ts in this country. i don't know if it decided anything because there are more debates to go but i will be surprised if romney doesn't get a bump from this, he was in command, far more in command then the moderator was. at one point he actually said maybe i am not a good moderators year. >> he seemed like the parent of two teenagers he could not control. >> they were not going to let anybody get in the way of the point he was trying to make. he couldn't get control that being said i said we are getting the points out here, now we have to really look at the clock so i think it's ok there's no
